Stripe Connect is a way for you to sign up for a merchant account with Stripe, our credit card processing provider. By having your own account, you will essentially "connect" the payments directly to your bank account in real time as attendees pay for their registrations. You will also be able to review all the transactions that have happened through the dashboard. In addition, you can set up how the transaction will appear on their credit card. However, you will be responsible for approving any refunds that happen during the event. Please refer to the Stripe website for more information. Stripe does not support offline payment, please contact support for information on offline payment methods.
